In the census, immediately after Jane is listed 26 year old Elizabeth. She cannot be Jane's child. Perhaps a child from an earlier marriage?

Isaac was about 9 years old when his parents migranted through the Cumberland Gap from Washington Co VA to Indian Creek in Clay Co KY.

Four of the sons of Isaac and Jane were in the Union Army during the Civil War: George W., James, Jacob and Michael. James was killed in the battle Lookout Mountain; Michael was wounded in the same battle. Michale was an Honor Guard for Abraham Lincoln's body when it was transported by rail from Chicago to Springfield, Illinois. [Actually 5 sons served - Abel served, too, because he applied for his pension.]

Isaac is buried in the Henry Gabbard graveyard on Indian Creek in Owsley Co KY. Jane, known as Jennie, died in Berea, KY but was brought back for burial to same graveyard.

He applied for his Invalid Pension in Nov of 1879. He resided at the time in Jackson Co KY.
